~Flow is an artwork by Owl Project and Ed Carter
~Flow is a tidemill - a floating building on the River Tyne that generates its own power using a tidal water wheel. Step onboard and into the building, which houses electro acoustic musical machinery, and instruments that respond to the constantly changing environment of the river, generating sounds and data.
~Flow spans artforms, blending contemporary and traditional methods. Its wide appeal, combines sculpture, cutting edge technology, hand crafted wooden instruments, architecture, precision engineering and electronic music to create an astonishing audio-visual public artwork.
~Flow is free and open to all on the River Tyne from 25 March 2012.
This project is part of Artists taking the lead, one of twelve extraordinary public art commissions funded by the UK Arts Councils for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad to help celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
